Transformational leaders are different. They are built with a certain confident sense of themselves and others. They are not handcuffed by memories of the past or fears of the future. They are not dependent upon the tried, the tested and the true. They are adventurers, driven and motivated by the thrill of discovery, not the comforts of home. They know a ship moored at harbour is not the safest place to ride out a major storm. They know their ship is much better off being at sea when a hurricane blows through. The choices are up to the captain, and the outcome will be the direct result of the choices he or she makes.
